Beckett James, Month Eight

Oh Beckett!! Eight months old already. You have changed so much in just one month!

Favorites: Daisy is right there at the top of your list right now. Your face lights up as soon as you see her. You crack up and close your eyes every time she comes over to kiss your ears. You also love your pirate puppy that we bought at Homegoods a few weeks ago. You wouldn’t put it down in the store and cried while the cashier rang him up and cut the tags off for you. You love to eat and go for walks in the stroller. You prefer to go alone with me and get annoyed if someone else joins us and you have to listen to our conversations. You love to see your friend Alicia every day after school. Your face lights up when you see her in the crowd at school. You love music, blowing raspberries with food in your mouth and taking baths in the sink. You love to be on my hip but not my lap. You LOVE to walk around the house and sitting still is just not your thing. You love playing with the Honest wipes just to hear the package crinkle.

Dislikes: Sitting still. You need to be on the move constantly. You also hate nap and bedtime.

Sleep: Nope. Getting you to sleep is once again a struggle and a major cause to my stress level throughout the day. You want to be with me 24/7. I love being with you too, but your mama needs her sleep. You are still going down around 6:30-7:00 pm and waking up twice during the night.

Milestones: two little baby teeth popped through this month. You are rolling all over the living room and pulling yourself to get where you want to go. You’re also pulling yourself up to a standing position when someone is playing with you on the floor. You can feed yourself whatever bits of food is on your tray. You say dada, baba, mama and nanana. You have the cutest little voice!!

Wearing: still wearing 6-12 month clothing and size 1 Freshly Picked Mocs. Boy summer clothes are my new favorite thing and I wish I had the time and money to shop for you every day. The little muscle tank onesies are just about the cutest thing I’ve ever bought you. They crack me up. Even though you’re a little peanut you do have some creases in your arms and legs and getting to see them during these warm summer days is such a delight!

Eating: You LOVE food!! You’re eating three solid meals a day and snacking on puffs. Still nursing 5-7 times throughout the day (and night).

I’m obsessed with the back of your head!


This is your favorite toy!


My favorite pajamas:


You go to bed kicking and screaming but you ALWAYS greet me with a huge smile in the morning


You’re loving the fact that you can now sit in the front of the shopping cart and grab and pull on everything you can reach


Every month is my new favorite with you! You’re growing and learning so much every day!! You are the first person the girls run to when they walk in the house. You make everyone’s day so much brighter!! Mama loves you, Beckett!!! Happy eight months!
